Mrs. Vining from Gallup NM is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Instead of Rocks and Sticks!

Help me give my students playground supplies to enjoy during their recess break. They need a training net, rubber footballs, and a Megaball bat.

My Project

Coming out of retirement I was not sure what it would be like to teach children who have survived the Covid pandemic. My goal was to create an atmosphere of well being. A whole child! Our biggest challenge is a new school that has a rough, rocky, dirt play area. I have even witnessed the students playing baseball with rocks and sticks and I don't have safe baseballs and bats for them to use. Please help us get some supplies to enjoy when they take a break from learning.
